Now here’s is a bit of uncommon Valentine’s Day advice. It’s probably not what most people are expecting from me as a love coach, but I am not a common dating coach who gives common advice.
I am notoriously known for my profound, yet simple secrets, which come from the experience alone.
Here is our philosophy on Valentine’s as a couple who has been together for 12 years and it still feels like we’re on our honeymoon.
Very briefly, I will say that as a happily married couple of seven years:
We believe in surprises and we don’t believe in demanding, forcing, obligating someone to court, show, or prove their feelings.
Now Valentine’s Day isn’t something we avoid or anything. It’s fine and wonderful, but we think that if someone put that effort on a totally random day the impact would be significantly greater, because it wasn’t expected at all, than on Valentine’s day.
So why diminish the impact of our efforts?
As a result, we don’t obligate ourselves to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
We may or may not. Some years we have done the typical things, flowers, restaurant, etc… And other years we haven’t.
Valentine’s Day is appreciated, but not required.
